To REALLY get to the bottom line, just do this:

You have installed the MDK on a mac. Now copy all your app's exe and dll files (and any other necessary files) to some directory on your mac, and simply launch:
	mono yourapp.exe

If it runs, kudos to you. You either have a trivial app, or you've disproven what I said above.

If it doesn't run, then there's no escaping the fact, that additional testing & development would be necessary to make it run.
